2019 Rising Stars Sectional Huge Success

The 2019 Rising Stars Sectional was a terrific success: more players (up 25% from last year), wonderful food, especially the Rising Stars cookies, lots of Unit 550 winners and our volunteers pulled off another Sectional flawlessly.

Co-Chairs Carol Cowen and Gina Brown assembled a great tournament for our members. They express a sincere "thank you" to the volunteers who helped setup, cleanup and brought baked goods, food & snacks. Special thanks to John Benich, Gary Oing, Robert Johnson, Tom Burke, Jonni Faircrest, Ken Gamble, Jan Winham, Ken Llacera, Ken Martin, John Wesolowski, Nancy Ficarrotta, Shirley Llacera, Bette and David Harken.

All the results are posted to ACBL Live. Due to the issue with the Bridgemates, none of the contracts from the Pair events are available.

Tuesday Evening Pro-Am on 3/19

It's never too early to ask your favorite Pro or Mentor to play in the upcoming pro-am/mentor-mentee game, Tuesday, March 19. It will start with a potluck at 6PM, provided by the Am players. Robin will allow time after the game to discuss hands.

"Am's" (under 750 points): You may play with your regular Tuesday Am, another Am, a "Pro" you have asked, or Robin will do her best to set you up with a "Pro" for the evening. Please sign up on the sheet provided at the SCBC. If you have any questions, e-mail Robin at or call the bridge center at 465-1102.

"Pro's": Please sign up at the SCBC if you are willing to share your expertise.
